The EYC wants to create a “home-grown” pool of trained and certified race committee personnel, in order to continue to improve the quality of race management during the Ephraim Regatta. Race management is challenging and can be a rewarding hobby for people who like to get out on the water in powerboats and not just cruise around aimlessly in circles, but actually DO something. If you are interested in being trained as a race management official, contact Jay Lott, EYC Race and Regatta Chairman, as soon as possible at email@example.com . The EYC will pay for US Sailing certification courses for the right candidate(s). You don’t have to be an experienced sailor or racer in order to be a race official (although it helps). For the forseeable future, EYC staff will continue to run all series races and all regattas except the Ephraim Regatta.
